EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) The City of Evansville has been awarded $790,410 from the CARES act to go towards those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The City has opted to use the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s permitted 5-day comment period and to post notice to the public onto the City’s website.

The comment period started Wednesday and continues through Monday at 4:00 p.m.

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the Substantial Amendment to the City of Evansville, Department of Metropolitan Development at the following email address: kkjackson@evansville.in.gov.
